Daylight saving time discontinued Thursday until end Ramadan

Egypt's cabinet announced on Tuesday that daylight saving time will be discontinued at midnight on Thursday 26 June until after Ramadan at midnight on Thursday 31 July. 

Former President Adly Mansour had decreed the measure beginning on the last Friday of April until the last Thursday of September each year except in Ramadan in an effort to save energy.
